FRIENDS. Both Monday and Tuesday nights I had dinner with friends.
CONGREGATION. The dinner for the departing rabbi was beautiful. It gave me a chance to re-connect with people in the community, and also to re-acquaint myself with the location of the Jewish school. I'm planning to look for ways to get more involved, in terms of classes, volunteering, and so on.
REFLECTION. I realized I need to budget some time for my solitary pursuits - reading, study, and writing - so that I do not neglect these.
